Tiny topwater baits

Well usually i`m not the kinda guy who takes pictures of lures made by other people but these tiny little bastards are so cute that i just gave it a try. Got myself some decent cicadas to fish for topwater chub in my homeriver … Here you go:

Tiemco Trick Trout Cicada II

Smith Ltd. Bisen Cicada - NIIIIICE!

Tiemco Trick Trout Noisy Cicada II

Rapala X-Rap Shad - No that`s not a topwater bait, you`re right smart ass! Fancied those for much too long so let`s see how the perch like èm.

Nuff fooling around for now … go out there and get yourself a lunker!

Vagabond Lures

Just found these lures browsing through the net. You should really give those Vagabond lures a closer look. Awesome!

Holidays & Killers - everything is safe!

So, one week off finally! Holiday means fishing, fishing and … erm … yes, fishing! Today i tested the not so new Imakatsu Wind Killer Bill - man what an awesome little lure. Caught some really tiny pikes and perch up to 30 cm on this crazy little thing. This was rather a lazy but a good fishing day anyway. When the expenssive weapon got trapped in some branches it was time to put the home made lure safer to the test once again. This little toy is simply but absolutely effective. I`ll post some pictures within the next days.

Fat Boy

Just when you think that you don`t need any more of the Japanese gadget lures another of these artpieces crosses your way. Few weeks ago the Jackall 10CC crossed my way and i just love it. Tiny but voluminous these little bastards cast like hell on my Megabass F1-60X. Perch seem to love them, too. So, what else do you need. Go out and get some of these man.

Hail to da king!

Within the special charity auctions for terminally ill children there`s a special Megabass Bomber Jacket on auction at yahoo auctions JP. Though signed by the master Yuki Ito himself it`s still goddamn ugly. I`d rather fancy the tour shirts and rod. Die hard Megabass fans can place their bid here
